Representative Text

1 We’ll meet again on Eden’s Plains
Some happy summer morning,
Where crowns of light and robes of white,
Shall be our sweet adorning.

Refrain:
Yes, we will meet—each other greet,
When safe across the river,
Close by our King, His praise we’ll sing,
Forever and forever.

2 No weary moan when all alone,
No dreary hours of sadness,
But lov’d ones dear our souls shall cheer,
In yonder home of gladness. [Refrain]

3 No tempter’s smiles that here beguiles
In yonder home supernal,
Where al are pure and all secure
Thro’out the years eternal. [Refrain]

4 No cross to bear when safely there
But then bright crowns of glory,
While evermore we o’er and o’er
Will sing redemption’s story. [Refrain]
